Thanks for this incredible forum, I hope I will learn a lot from the gurus !
I am trying to make my eGpu MSI GT X970 work on my laptop with K1100M integrated GPU.
This are my specs:
CPU: 2.7GHz Intel Core i7-4800MQ (quad-core, 6MB cache, up to 3.7GHz with Turbo Boost) PSU : ??? Graphics: NVIDIA Quadro K1100M / Intel HD Graphics 4600 RAM: 32 GB Storage: 1TB
I got a V8.0 EXP GDC Laptop External Independent Video Card Dock with the express card version ( I am not really hw savy) and I am looking for a good psu to power my MSI GTX 970 4G
Could you kindly suggest a good PSU that i could use to power this GPU ? I am also willing to do as many experiments needed
Thanks for reading my post

40GB RAM 2133mhz ddr4,
Win 10 x64
BPlus PE4L-EC060A 2.1b eGPU adapter
GTX 960 DDR5 4GB
350 W power supply result as attached pictures...
facing with windows crashing initially, updating driver problem solved... no 1.3 setup needed,
from bios discreet graphics selected otherwise system will not start....
1st have to install intel driver, then quadro driver, Plug PE4L, will be noticed new graphics adapter, then install latest Nvidia driver, mine is 378.49,
So I have a 3 year old Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga S1 that I travel with and I'm thinking of modding it a bit to take a GDC EXP Beast, my idea is to take out one of speakers and attach a female to female HDMI adapter in it's spot. From there i would use th emPCIe connector, coil it's cable up and connect it to one side of the adapter, seal the laptop up, then all I'd need to plug in the eGPU with a normal HDMI cable. Is this something that could work?
1. What's the problem?
I have hooked up my eGPU through the ExpressCard Slot. I have installed all drivers. Under Device Manager it shows my eGPU. Sometimes it will show up with an error 12 but most of the time it does not. When I plug in the HDMI port to my TV, my TV acts like to it received a signal and fails displaying no signal.
2. Have you consulted the Troubleshooting FAQ to resolve the issue?
I believe I have delved into it thoroughly but nothing has worked. Thank you for getting me this far, I have been at this for days.
3. Have you consulted the Pre-Purchase FAQ --> "2. How can I check if my notebook is compatible with an eGPU?"
Yes, I have also seen many videos and posts of people using my exact same laptop with wonderful success.

There are two-3 position switches located on the board. I have them set at their default 1 and 1.
The legend on the board notes this:
SW1 - PERST# Delay - 1 | Disable - 2 | 9.8 seconds - 3 | 14.8 seconds
SW2 - CLK Delay - 1 | Disable - 2 | 11.97 seconds - 3 | 16.9 seconds
I have tried these in every possible combination.
Any help resolving these issues would be greatly appreciated.
